Tamil Nadu government approaches Kitex Group for investment
The state government of Tamil Nadu has extended a proposal to garment manufacturer and exporter Kitex group to invest in the state’s textile industry.
After Kitex group announced its plan to remove its investment of Rs 3,500 crore ($526 million) in the textile industry from Kerala, over 10 Indian states have sent unofficial communications to the business to invest. The Tamil Nadu government sent an official offer to the business which it confirmed in a statement, ET Bureau reported.
“A proposal has been extended to the Kitex group, which is keen on investing Rs 3,500 crore in the textile sector,” a senior industries department official in Tamil Nadu told the Press Trust of India.
Kitex is based in Kerala but has confirmed that the Kerala government has not sent any form of invitation to the business to secure its investment. Kitex’s chairman Sabu Jacob confirmed on Saturday that he has not received any communications on the matter from the Kerala state government. He also said that he has not yet taken a decision on the matter and is considering the various offers, calling Tamil Nadu an “attractive investment destination.”
Kitex chose to withdraw its Rs 3,500 investment project from Kerala due to what the business alleges was harassment including 10 official raids on its facilities. Kitex Garments Limited’s full name is Kizhakkambalam Textiles and the business is named after its headquarters’ location in Kizhakkambalam in Ernakulam, Kerala.
